“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2006

Joseph, Aaron and Tim were incredible! The outdoor pool and surrounding area were absolutely beautiful! The hotel amenities are endless! Each day as I came in from the pool, I walked into my exceptionally clean hotel room (thanks to a wonderul housekeeping staff). If you are looking for a restful and peaceful vacation spot with a very helpful staff, I highly recommend staying at this hotel!

My boyfriend and I stayed here after reading the reviews. The grounds are beatiful, it is close to the downtown area, they provide continental breakfast, they have a fitness room with sauna and steam room, they have a quiet adult pool and a "loud" pool for kids, the rooms are clean and big....What else could you ask for??? Since it is spring break the rate was $150 which is still reasonable. The pool even provides large towels for lounging. I don't have any complaints. I love the tiled floors in the room and the decor is nice. We got the room with the "pool patio". Some of the patios have grass out front, unfortunately our patio has rocks in front of it and we really do not have a view of the pool. Personally, that does not matter to me, and I like being on the ground level with a few chairs to sit on outside. I would reccomend the ground floor, but ask for a room with grass outside the patio. Also, make sure your patio does not face the kid pool. Especially if you want some peace and quiet.

The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are nice and the service is good. The hotel is on the north end of town, so it's less noisy. Great for families.
My only negative: the breakfast is average and there's no good place indoors to sit and eat at a table.
I would gladly stay here again.
